This use of color is wonderful... I remember my mother is this dress...she made them in several colors and patterns... I looked over more of this women's Vintage DIY the use of color is over the top....She is so talented!

I love this dress so much. I have a ton of vintage patterns, but I'm always unsure about how to alter them to fit me. The fabric the blogger's chosen is so gorgeous!

I wore this kind of dress everyday to school. The hem MUST be pass the knee. And the teacher would get a measuring tape to make sure! I don't remember how many inches...but if it wasn't we went right back home!
